"Computer technology has been available to a few artists for less than
two decades. At the same time that computers are becoming household
utensils, a mixture of high expectation and stubborn opposition surrounds
the tentative use of these instruments for art. About the computer’s
applicability in art there will be much more to say throughout the book.
The purpose of this book, then, is to define, as much as I understand
them, the principles of harmony as they apply to graphic manipulation of
dynamic motion-pattern by computer. Whether my efforts constitute a
final valid grammar is irrelevant. The purpose is to document my own approach and to propose the seminal idea of making an approach."
